    Todays was brilliant too. He was blinded by a killer. He grew confident but didn't realise he wasn't looking at who was talking to him.The shrink was funny too, though he looks very ill in this series.
    Anyone noticed that Stotlemyer's wife hasn't been in it lately? He mentioned his ex wife today, but I don't remember them getting divorced. I wonder why they wrote her out of the series.

    Rondy. It was in Season 4 that they split up the Captain and his wife...

    During the investigation of a murder in a junkyard, Captain Stottlemeyer punches a cop named Ryan Sharkey, who claims to be having an affair with the captain's wife, Karen.

    The only witness to the murder, a homeless man named Gerald or Jerry, has disappeared, but Stottlemeyer suspects businessman Michael Karpov, who is facing charges for money laundering and had a motive for killing the victim, who was scheduled to testify against him.

    Removed from the case and ordered to take anger management classes, Stottlemeyer asks Monk and Natalie to follow his wife, whom he suspects of lying about her whereabouts. They discover Karen having lunch with a man but are only able to photograph him from the back before being interrupted.

    Meanwhile, the homeless witness has been stunned and thrown from the third floor of a building but survives the fall, thanks to a corrugated refrigerator carton.

    Disher places Karpov in a line-up otherwise composed of police officers, including Sharkey, but Stottlemeyer, still enraged at Sharkey, disrupts the line-up before the procedure has been completed.

    An apple provides the clue that Monk needs to solve the murder case, and Karen reveals the identity of the mystery man she had lunch with. Unfortunately for the captain, it isn't Sharkey, it's her divorce lawyer. 


    Remember the homeless man, and his mouse?



    I've just taken delivery of the latest book - Mr Monk in Outer Space.

    Guess what I'll be doing tonight? <laugh>

    The very last thing in the story is a '.'. Hope that doesn't spoil it too much for you, Jane. <biggrin> Mr Monk in Outer Space.

    I don't know why the BBC has not bought the new series, especially when they keep putting on Diagnosis Murder at any given opportunity.

    Very true that: One of the best programmes for many a year. The funny thing is that they had the original series which was great, then since then they haven't followed it up. It keeps winning awards, I can only assume it's got too succesful and is too expensive for the BBC now.
    Having lost Neighbours to Channel 5 and Monk to Sky, there's not much left of any class....except Ashes to Ashes.

    Mr. Monk Gets a New Shrink was fun tonight...

    Monk: Oh. I'm having trouble sleeping. I think I'm developing a fear of blankets. Is there a name for that?
    Dr. Kroger: I don't think so.
    Monk: Uh-oh...

    Monk is on BBC Two next Saturday - 'Mr Monk and the Actor' - I've no idea if it's new or a repeat. :-)

    Probably new to BBC. It's been on Hallmark already and was a hoot. Stanley Tucci gets to play Monk in a film and follows Monk around researching the role.

    I think it's a repeat, the new ones are on Hallmark every Sunday at 10am and 7pm.

    Rondy. It's not a repeat to BBC!

    I've just looked up the Monk episode guide, and Mr Monk and the Actor is the first episode of Season Five.

    While working on a double murder, Monk finds that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery when he finds that an obsessive method actor has been cast to play...Adrian Monk in a new movie.  

    It was brilliant. About time, BBC!

    Series 5 hasn't been shown on terrestrial TV in the UK so this is new to a lot of people, me included.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the whole 16 episodes and hope they don't muck about too much with the schedules.

    You are correct Dame Bouncy Castle, Mr Monk on Saturday is indeed new to BBC1. Maybe all the commotion we've made on here has been enough for the Beeb to see sense at last. I just wish they would put it on at peak time, maybe 8pm on a week night, it would be a sure fire blockbuster.
